A Rockland, Maine, woman says she would rather go to jail than take down her pro-Donald Trump signs.

According to NECN, Susan Reitman has two banners on her front gate: One that says "I love Trump" and another that says "He Won, Get over it."

She received a notice from the city’s code enforcement office asking her to take them down.

"I was shocked," she said. "This is my freedom of speech. People have a right to voice their opinion."

The code officer says another Rockland resident complained about the signs' size. The city ordinance states residential signs can be no larger than 2 square feet.

Reitman’s signs are a little larger than 3 feet by 2 feet.

She has until Friday to take them down, or face a fine between $100 - $1,000 a day.

This feisty lady thinks Rockland’s ordinance should be changed for this type of political speech. She has no intention of taking down her signs.

"If I have to sit in jail for the rest of eternity, that’s my choice," Reitman said.
